"In this post 9/11 world therapists need to expand their toolboxes to deal with trauma and its effects. This book provides a new way of dealing with the devastating emotional residue of a traumatic event. It centers on the innovative application of hypnotherapy to help trauma victims ""self-actualize"", regain their lives, and move forward again.
Many people are familiar with the famous ""fight or flight"" response to trauma, but few know about the ""freeze"" response. ""Freeze"" is the most dangerous of the trio since it inhibits any reaction and leaves the victim immobile. It can lead directly to Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Also included is a brief survey of brain research and its implications. For clinicians, this volume outlines the effects of trauma on mind and body and provides comprehensive treatment plans for the mental disorders caused or exacerbated by trauma.
